Seminary Writing Consultation Services - Ashland Theological Seminary

Seminary Writing Consultation Services

Seminary writing consultation (SWC) is a free service available for students in graduate degree programs at the Ashland Theological Seminary (ATS). The aim of the service is to collaborate with and mentor students as they explore ways to improve their graduate-level academic writing skills. The service includes both individual and small-group consultations; all consultations are confidential.


SWC is an important service for all Seminary students, especially those who have been away from academia for a while or international students adapting to Seminary study in the United States.

As you strive to become a better thinker and writer at the graduate level, our masters’ qualified Seminary Writing Consultants (SWCs) can help with the following issues:

  • Improving organization and structure
  • Enhancing word flow, clarity, and readability
  • Fulfilling APA or other formal style guidelines, including in-text citation and final documentation
  • Identifying and correcting grammar and punctuation errors

Please remember, however, that the SWC is not permitted to write or correct a paper for you.
